If you love vintage, you’ll love the home of Swedish TV presenter and interior / fashion blogger Elsa Billgren. Elsa lives with her family in Mosebacke, in the hip district of Söder in Stockholm. Despite being in the heart of the capital, Elsa’s apartment is a picture of calm thanks to rustic furniture that wouldn’t look out of place in a country home, plants around every corner, relaxed piles of books, art and plenty of cushions, sheepskins and blankets! Once into bright colours (see her previous Stockholm home), Elsa has toned down to a more earthy palette over the years – but look closely and you’ll spot soft hues of red, green and blue. Ready for the tour? Put your feet up and enjoy!
The dining area is a made of a blend of vintage pieces including a fabulous rustic farmhouse table with drawers.
I’m really curious about this table, as I’ve passed up tables like this in the past due to the bars just above the floor and lower drawers. Maybe I should take another look and see if it’s possible after all. Does anyone else have experience with using these types of tables as a dining table?
I love the quirky touch with the blue architrave around the door. Notice how Elsa has also added blue cushions on the sofa to balance the look.
How beautiful! It makes me want to scour the internet for antiques – do you feel the same?
Is there anything that stood out to you?
Thank you to Idha Lindhag for the kind permission to share these images. If you’d like to see more of Elsa’s home hop on over to instagram. She also has a book Elsas Husdröm 2021 and also a Podcast: Billgren Wood (both in Swedish).
Have a great start to the week!
I’ve just arrived in Oslo, Norway for a few days – very exciting to be out travelling again, even if it’s for work! Follow my adventure on Instagram stories if you’re curious to see what I get up to! I hope to write a guide here soon too!
